Jamaica’s Alia Atkinson won the gold medal in the 50m breaststroke at the FINA World Short Course Swimming Championships in Hangzhou, China, on Wednesday.

The world-record holder, who celebrated her 30th birthday on Tuesday, came from behind to win in 29.05s.

Alia Atkinson OD (Order of Distinction, 5th highest honour one can achieve in Jamaica) has continued as always to represent Jamaica well, in a sport that Jamaica does not have much support in. She has won multiple world championships and broken records. She has done this with amazing humility and grace in a sport that is represented very minimally by Jamaicans or people of colour.

In winning her first gold medal at these championships, the veteran Jamaican held off the challenge of long-time rival Ruta Meilutyte of Lithuania who touched in 29.38s. Martina Carraro of Italy won the bronze medal in 29.59s.

The Jamaican set a new world record of 28.56s, this year, lowering her own mark of 28.64 set in 2016.

Happy Mother’s Day

I want to take a moment to honour these super mothers who impact my life on daily basis. I am grateful for them as mothers and the importance they have in my life. You all have been the inspiration of beauty, courage, love and some of the most powerful aspects of GOD’s creation. I am blessed that you are integral to my life and the lives of all the children you are mothers to. Ladies you are all amazing and I pray today and everyday will be blessed.

Mummy, Jamarah, Kerie, and Debi, I honour you all today. I love you so much.
